Trying a new thing

I am finding it increasingly hard to keep up with my daily blog posts while also trying to keep up with yoga teacher training and all of the extra chores that Spring is bringing in the yard.

I don’t want to lose the daily posting because keeping to the accountability to write daily works better for me than trying to allow myself a day off now and then, but I just don’t have the energy to post my usual lengthy posts every day of the week right now. So I am going to try a new thing.

Starting today (well, actually I guess I started on Tuesday—I just didn’t know it yet), I will share only brief posts on Tuesdays and Thursdays consisting of a longer quote or poem with only a few words from me. I’m going to call these my “quick quotes.” We’ll see how this goes to see if this schedule works out better.

My quote for today is one that makes me laugh every time I read it, but it also makes me cringe to realize how far I still have to go!

“If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics,
Then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.”
~Unknown Author

May I someday reach the point as consistently living as honorably and with as much integrity as a dog!

A Note on Comments: A chrysalis is by nature a very fragile place, and it takes a good deal of vulnerability to share this personal journey of transformation so openly. Therefore, I need this to be a safe place for exploration and sharing for me and for my readers. Comments sharing your own journey, even if your experience is different from mine, are always welcome and encouraged. Expressions of support or encouragement are also welcome. Comments that criticize, disparage, correct, or in any way attempt to undermine the validity of another person’s experience or personal insight—or the expression of that experience or insight—are NOT welcome here and will be deleted.
